-2-19 strategy. now you can lose a state like virginia, one of the three, indiana, north carolina and virginia that he has to win or we thought he had to win to have a shot. you can lose one of those states, because now so many states are in tossup, nevada, michigan, wisconsin, those three states if you win them you can start to lose some of the 3-2-1 states which is something the obama campaign could not have possibly been thinking about this late in the game. >> bret: karl, as we point out, this is over 30 days. you moved texas in to the dark red, because you just said it is. but georgia is the same way, right? tennessee, kentucky? >> we have 35 electoral college votes called lean romney, georgia, tennessee, kentucky. they are called that because the last poll we have is some time ago. but i personally think those 35 electoral college votes are in romney's column. if you do that, think about that for a minute. solid obama states 14 of them represent 184 electoral college votes. if you add kentucky, tennessee, georgia, to the 1 states that romney has. you add those states with bah and 184 to

to be more patriotic to were the country. host: thank you. let's listen to another clip from a virginia group of undecided voters. the question is "was cares or concerns you right now?" >> just the whole economy. how do we get out? i do not see any candidates really having a plan were really giving direction. host: back to the newspapers this morning. next from twitter -- let's take the next call from here in washington, d.c. joyce is a republican. caller: i agree with those who say i do not think we are recovering. i think the major part of it is so many of the billionaire's are sailing along and we are being pulled back by billionaires' like george soros who continually says he was to puncture the american supremacy. he has a book called "the bubble of american supremacy." he says that. i heard him speak a while ago at the national press club. one thing he was trying to do at the time was trying to legalize drugs. there was a huge article in the new yorker magazine talking about a meeting he held. i am very concerned about this election. we attended a meeting that some of his young people w
to northern virginia etc. the could be true even if pennsylvania is overwhelmingly democratic because of the more friendly terrain under the circumstances. >> basically what's happened is when i first started coming into politics in the 80's it's always decided by the monsters of the midway. the midwest and the swing states are preponderant the whitewater demographically and heavily blue-collar. now it's emerged in the last eight years to second pathway available to the democrats and previously heavily read state devotee of the set so the same forces that obama himself and bodies, the well-educated and diverse and the kind of southeast conference north carolina, virginia and florida and southwest conference of nevada, colorado and mexico with arizona and georgia kind of beat behind each case. and in the long run, you know, is striking how obama is holding up in the western state into long run though, places like this where the democrats hold the coalition of minorities and college whites and social liberal seem to be more of the future of the party also, again, this election i think o
warner, the senator from virginia who had been governor. he was traveling around the state on labor day when they have traditional rallies in the state. four years ago, he said to me on the floor tonight, four years ago there were barack obama signs everywhere and the people who put up the signs, the roadside signs, the lawn signs paid for the signs themselves. this time around there were no signs to be seen in any of those rural, middle, and southern virginia places. so the purpose of tonight from castro and from the first lady was to speak to those people and plead with those people. i thought towards the end of the speech michelle obama was saying, look, you know what the vision is. i'm reminding you of what the vision of barack obama and the democratic party is but we need you to get out there and work. we need you to be enthusiastic. and that's the important thing for the latino vote, the women's vote, and interestingly enough in virginia, the veterans' vote because they think they have a got chance there. if barack obama cannot ignite those people in northern virginia, he's going
us that you're better off today than when he took office. [ female announcer ] here in virginia, we're not better off under president obama. his defense cuts threaten over one hundred thirty thousand jobs, lowering home values, putting families at risk. the romney plan? tax cuts for middle class families. north american energy independence. create over three hundred forty thousand new jobs for virginia. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approved this message. this bridge. your new car probably rode thesed [ romney ] i'm mitt romney rails. that shipment you just received was tracked by satellite. we build and maintain. we invest and innovate. so we can deliver what america needs. this year alone, freight rail companies plan to spend twenty-three billion of their own money, not taxpayer dollars, to build bridges, maintain track, and develop new technologies to keep freight rail and our economy moving. there's a lot riding on these rails.  >> the path we are on may be harder but leads to a better place. i am asking you to choose that future. >> he doesn't
only at or be 6%. the president was blunt today at a campaign in virginia. he is keeping americans safe at home and abroad. >> we have to make sure that not only our military, but also our diplomats overseas are protected. >> pedagogue officials claimed u.s. marines were in another part of lidia. then admitted that was not true. state department officials said there were no libyan guards inside the perimeter of the u.s. consulate and had to walk that back. >> you hate to think the president would purposely mislead the american people, but it sure likes it -- it sure looks like it to me. >> any notion that they have misled the american people -- they maintained the only reason it has changed is because new facts have emerged because this is an ongoing investigation. nonetheless, it is clear republicans are using this change an account to continue to challenge the president's credibility. lou: ed, is there any indication that the white house intent and some timeframe i must certainly will not be soon, because we are approaching the second week since the murders of our ambassador and three
of his time. for what purpose does the gentleman from virginia seek recognition? >> mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman from virginia is recognized for one minute. >> mr. speaker, americans continue to look for work, put food on the table and ensure their children have school supplies as fall comes into full swing, yet the house is set to leave washington today with many items on its to-do list. while congress works to finish up to pass a budget to fund the federal government, catastrophic cuts loom on the horizon set to hit january, 2013. mr. wittman: leaving these cuts is unconshenable. it's not the right thing to do. our all-volunteer force is at war and these cuts threaten our national security. furthermore, they threaten over 200,000 jobs in virginia. nine days remain before the new fiscal year begins. congress should do the right thing and stay in washington instead of ignoring the reality and delaying tough decisions. it's time to put governing over politics.
for the call. abby is on the phone from leesburg, virginia on our republican line. caller: i was just calling to say i agree with the last caller that we do have quite a bit of standstill because people are mostly focused on the politics of just polarizing the different parties than actually agreeing to compromise. however, i do appreciate some of the social issues, specifically abortion, that they don't compromise as much. not every issue needs to be such a hard-line. host: thank you. twitter --ion if you are listening on c-span radio, we are talking about congress, expected to wrap up business today, recessing for the november elections and then back for a busy lame-duck session. mike has this story -- is more from the democratic leader nancy pelosi of california. [video clip] >> members of congress that were elected to a job, not just to hold the job by campaigning. but republicans are not interested in working together to create jobs and grow the economy and strengthen the middle-class. between august 3 when we adjourned and november 13 when we are scheduled to come back to session, augus
of the united states, so we're going to move on to curtis on our line for republicans, calling from virginia this morning. go ahead, curtis. caller: yeah, i believe in one-party control in congress if it's a republican. if it's not, i don't want to see the democrats in control. i think they got way too extreme and the reason they don't compromise as much -- i feel it's all the democrats' fault. host: let me refer you to a tweet that we have from gary. gary says divided government is best. however, not dysfunctional government. we need people who do government can do things and allow it to do those things. what do you think? caller: honestly, i think divided government is it good, and i do like the fact that there's -- for example, you've got obama, he wants to put forth a socialist agenda. i don't want a socialist agenda. they keep saying we're obstructing. you're darn right we're obstructing. we don't 79 a socialist agenda in united states. that's been tried in europe, and look how bad off they are. it's just a disaster. i don't mind when they call us obstructionists, and i'm proud we're ob
california, mr. waxman and the gentleman from florida, mr. mica and the gentleman from west virginia, mr. rahall, each will control 10 minutes. and the house will be in order. and the chair would recognize the gentleman from washington, mr. hastings. mr. hastings: i yield myself such time as i may consume. the chair: the gentleman is recognized. mr. hastings: mr. chairman, 2008 campaign, president obama plainly declared the policies he supports would bankrupt american coal production. the obama administration has waged a war on coal, coal jobs and the small businesses in the mining supply chain and the low cost energy that millions of americans rely on. mr. chairman, the house is not in order. the chair: the gentleman is correct. the committee will be in order and the chair would ask members to take your conversations in the back of the chamber, to remove your conversations from the floor, please. take your seats. the gentleman from washington. mr. hastings: thank you, mr. chairman. mr. chairman, amazingly, the obama administration has denied that they have launched a war on coal, yet th
understand the is. it really fun -- laid out -- he can win virginia, iowa, and number of states, ohio, for example, with those 18 and electoral votes. there are so many paths to victory. this guy basically has to run the table, as it were. he has to run the table, essentially, to beat mr. obama. whereas, if you are romney, how would you appeal to them? >> it is real tough for the republicans. there are a lot of seats. but the electoral map is very tough. we need both florida and ohio. a number of other states, as you say. i think mitt romney made a poor choice with paul ryan. there was the government is bad side, except when it comes to reproductive rights, where suddenly they know more than women and their doctors, but there are other issues. he is saying to forget about government, but i think he needs to take back this issue that government is just the enemy. we need some balance. i do not think he is going to do it, but i think he means, not just as basic, to move to the center, but move to that playset recognizes that a better balance between a free-market and democratic governme
battleground states. the president has a five-point lead over romney in virginia and florida. and in ohio, his lead is up to seven points. >> and of course, john heilmann, these are all states that george w. bush won in 2004. virginia's a little wider than we could have expected. florida, a five-point lead in such a conservative state. this late in the game with few undecided voters is really telling. but the ohio number, again, continues to be -- >> devastating. >> -- the dagger in the romney campaign's heart if they can't -- if they can't pull that out and make that a closer race. seven points in ohio is devastating. the right track/wrong tracks in these states, all much better than they are in the rest of america. in ohio, the right track, 45% of ohio voters think that the country's headed in the right direction. >> look at those three numbers up there. 49, 49, 50, those are all, you know, the obvious point to make. you know, the president -- at 50 in ohio, those numbers are all approaching, you know, the numbers that you need to win those states. >> yep. >> and they're places the president
chance that they think they have in places like ohio, florida, and virginia, is squeezing every single vote out of the far right base that they can manage, which is kind of the bush strategy in ohio against john kerry in 2004 using the -- you know, the state proposition against guy marriage and other things to get out all of those mega churches and the far right vote. they are just going to keep finding these fake, phony issues and they are not going to be dictated to by fact checkers. >> well, joan walsh and david corn, i think the sad part is the step over four american bodies to do this. this is also despicable. thank you for joining me tonight. >> thanks, reverend al. >> thank you. >>> shoot first, aim later is how president obama described governor romney. so it's no surprise the bush ies have his back. donald rumsfeld is leading the defense. >>> plus, it's the burning question. why is governor romney doing this? why is he so desperate? we know why. tonight, some big news in the swing states just came out. >>> and fireworks inside the courtroom. the voter i.d. law goes to the penn
, virginia, north carolina and florida. so, what does this mean and how does it feel on the map? i'm going to go to our little battleground map here and as always, follow along up top when i make the state changes there, you'll see those numbers change there. so let's just give the president the states where he did better than that 13-point gap nationally. well then you would give him nevada, you'd give him colorado, wisconsin, and new hampshire. and look where it puts him, david. at 266. he just needs one more state. and i can tell you the one that they think they can exploit the gender gap and gender issues more than any other in the rest of those last five battlegrounds and that is virginia. as you know, david, just watching television in the northern virginia market you see a lot of ads, particularly that one on planned parenthood, having to use mitt romney's words. they think particularly in virginia, through as well as colorado, that they could exploit the gender gap and get to 270 without winning any other issues. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. carly fiorina, this is so importa
the president. mike is calling from my mom's home state of virginia. good morning, mike. >> caller: good morning. john i wanted to talk to the mvp of current tv. >> i'm like the jimmy ohlson i know. i'm the scab de jour. >> as a fellow entertainer and stand-up comic, i have so much respect for you. >> john: thank you. it has been nice to come here and see what they are trying to do, and they really are going for something independent, they welcome critiques of the democratic party and the president. they are not pretending to be unbiased, but they are also refusing to be in the pocket of the dnc. >> caller: i think the biggest lie i can't stand from the rnc is, hey, we're just trying to help. >> john: they are trying to help. they just don't say who. >> caller: exactly, yes. >> john: when i hear them talking about the war on poverty, then i'll take them seriously. >> caller: yes. i'll originally from virginia but i'm calling from vest virginia, but that was not redneck enough for me. >> john: you are right. would love to see governor romney balk about the poor and
